Wasabi Edamame Recipe



In recent years, Edamame has become really popular in Australia. Most Japanese restaurants have it on the menu and most Asian grocers sell frozen edamame. The most popular way to eat it is by simply boiling it with salt.

However, today I am going to share a bit of a twist that will make your edamame taste even better. I like to add wasabi powder or paste which gives the edamame a great kick. The recipe is super easy, it goes great with beer and is perfect when entertaining guests.

  1. Pour boiling water over frozen edamame and leave for 5 seconds or just blanch.
